RE: Sonic CD issue
i know what u are saying but its still bit of gamble, as each revision show different behaviour. for example rev 99th could work but 100th wouldn't and i will get another 50. i supose u might have right but its still a little bit of gamble.

But located regression could be fixed in next commits. And then, reappear again (possibly for a different cause).

Also, you didn't have to test all revisions. What you do is for example, let's say we have 100 revisions, 1,2,3... 99,100.

You test rev. 1 and confirm the game is broken. Then you test rev. 100 and confirm the game works. Then you test rev. 50. If the game works in rev. 50 you only need to look at revisions 2-49, because it had to break there, and not before it. If the game doesn't work you only need to look at revisions 51-99, again because you already know everything after 50 is also broken.

So let's say the game didn't work. You again test some revision in the middle of 51-99, like 75, and keep doing this, drastically speeding up the test process.

Just to be clear, git has a tool specifically for this: git bisect.

Guys, I just explained how an end user can look for regressions easily by explaining the principle, and not bring up big O notation or installing git... Wink

Nobody brought up Big O notation. log2(N) is just a normal expression. And using git bisect is an example of how developers tackle this, and how anyone should if they wanted to do it.

you know that if there is a regression in the emu and because of it a game wont run like it used to, chances are that more games will behave the same as this game. Its not about fixing this game, its about fixing the regression that will help other games too.
